I went to Wyoming last year on a backcountry hunt and I didnt pack a pillow just rolled up a sweatshirt and that didnt work very well, this year I want to get a pillow for the hunt what would you recommend, hard to tell by looking at pictures on line which one is good.

Kelty makes a Luxury Pillow that is 20"x15" it stuffs down to 6"x10" 80% duck down 20% poly. It comes with a stuff sack and the total weight is 10oz and retails for $26. Kelty also makes a Camp Pillow that is 18"x14" stuffs down 6"x10" 100% poly fill. Same weight, also comes with stuff sack and is a little more firm than the Luxury Pillow. Retails for around $13. Good luck!

At first glance I thought you said a raccoon... started laughing pretty good.

Montbell UL Pillow. Only weighs 1 ounce! that one gets my vote

I have a Therm a rest compression pillow and a cheap little inflatable job that rolls up into nothing and weighs net to nothing. I stuff the inflatable in my BA pillow pocket, put the Therm a rest on top and sleep like a baby. That is until my sleeping pad deflates but that's another thread altogether.

T43- Yes, yes it is. Sleeping pad deflation sucks! I finally bought myself a new Exped Synmat UL 7 today at work because I was sick of my old one deflating. Make a pillow pretty worthless.
